Planning a Funeral

Planning for a Funeral

The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised. The liturgy, therefore, is characterized by joy, in the certainty that “neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus , our Lord.”

  • The death of a member of the Church should be reported as soon as possible to the church.
  • Arrangements for the funeral should be made in consultation with the clergy before decisions are made with a funeral director.
  • Baptized Christians are properly buried from the church. The norm is to have the body or its ashes present for the service.
  • Lessons for the service are selected by the family with the help of the clergy. They can be found in the Book of Common Prayer on pages 494-495.
  • The coffin is to be closed before the service, and it remains closed thereafter.
  • The Burial Service may include a celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
  • Organist is available at a charge of $200.
  • Flowers can be ordered through the church office. The usual cost is $150.
  • The priest's honorarium is $250.
  • If music or flowers are chosen, please make payment to the church at the time the decision is made.
  • To schedule a funeral or memorial service, contact the Rev. Sherod Mallow at 954-467-6496, ext. 106
